Didn't realise I havent done a crochet update for a while and since I've been recovering from the weekend retreat no cards as been made this week, no I lie I made a DT card for next weeks challenge then discovered it was the wrong challenge. ( In fact its for 3weeks time!)
First off is my Sacred Space Blanket, it turn out much larger than the Lost Garden and was pretty heavy the last rows.
I made cushion with the flower squares which are Crocodile Stitch Afghan square, what I had forgotten about was that the later rows you grabbed the top of the petal so they laid down. I made my square small so they curled up and since the wool was acylic I was prepared to heat blocking. I worked in a wool shop and seen many an item where folks had tumbled dried or ironed their garment and not ready the care instructions.
Lost my way a bit with the Life Inspired Cal that is published in the Crochet Now. I have missed out a whole square mainly because I couldn't get it to straighten. After trying several times I decided lif is too short and since I had made 4 square instead of 3 I could easily forget about it.
I've order some more wool from Wool Warehouse this time in Aran and I plan to make myself a cardigan. Its called Sunday Funday by Iron Lamb and although I made myself a cotton jumper with squares which was too small but now fits me since losing weight. I 'm not very confident in making garments so we will see.
Meanwhile my Scrappy Blanket Square pile is growing. The pattern is the first four rows of a Jan Eaton's 200 Crochet Block Pattern.
